A few weeks ago as part of an event in Bristol, we put on an evening of short films to showcase some of the places and the stories that have inspired us here at Albion.
The theme of the night was ‘Adventures on film in the British Isles’, with our aim to highlight some of the people and the pursuits taking place on our small group of islands that have influenced us in the past few years.
You can watch the five films we chose in full, below.
